Family Hours

Informal family recreation is extremely important to RecSports as well as the University. We encourage all faculty and staff to bring their families to our facilities for relaxing recreational fun. Our basketball courts, racquetball courts, table tennis tables, and swimming pool are all available for use during family hours in our facilities.
